We had an amazing day out in the Douro Valley. Our guide, Tiago, was very knowledgeable and great fun. We got to try lots of wines and I loved being able to see the difference between a large scale Port producer and a small, family-run winery. Also, the lunch restaurant was lovely and even able to make a good vegetarian lunch for us - something that is pretty rare in Portugal! All in all, it was a great day and all coronavirus precautions were taken.
What a lovely day my mum and I had, visiting the Valley, tasting port wine and cruising on the Douro. Our guide was very knowledgeable, kind and patient. She was just giving the right amount of informations without overflowing us. She was also very funny and an excellent driver. On top of all our nice activities, we had a fantastic lunch. I'll probably be back if weather allows in a week or so with my boyfriend. A must to do while in Portugal !
The wine tasting was overall great! with our guide Marianna Cardoso we first visitied a cellar in Gaia and then came back to Porto to drink different types of local wine in two different bars. We learned a lot about the history of porto and other local wines and Marianna kindly gave us a lot of suggestions about sightseeing, food and drinks in the city.
Great full day tour which includes pick up and drop off. There is a stop on the way to the Douro for a bathroom break and coffee/snack (purchase on own). Lunch was a very generous helping. Wine tastings were nice. During COVID, they still sell all the seats in the van. Masks are mandatory except at the tastings and lunch of course.
Sophie picked us up at the hotel and so started a great day/tour! They were very friendly, knowledgeable and amazing all around. Slight warning if you get motion sickness I highly suggest taking gravol :) the wine was fantastic even for a beginner like myself and everything was honestly a great experience
